Nova was a wonderful, kind hearted lady. I have known her for nearly 60 years and she had a sweet smile and a kind word every time I saw her. I treasure the quilt she made me and the beautiful Christmas ornaments she made for us. I will always picture her walking around her yard “talking “ to her beautiful flowers! I will miss this sweet lady but I believe our loss is heavens gain.
